System Design, Modelling and Prototyping
With in-house rapid prototyping and 3D printing facilities, we can design and produce quality prototypes and models for testing. We are experts in process automation, modelling and computer aided design to help you at every stage of process or product development. Talk to us to streamline your route to market.
Proof of Concept Projects
Do you have an idea but are not sure if it works or is scalable? We translate ideas into reality whether you are developing a new chemical process, improving the heat exchange rate, scrubbing pollutants, or developing equipment for outer space exploration. We specialise in rapid prototyping and iteration, working closely with our customers.
Alternative Reaction Energy
We explore alternative energy sources for processes and develop radiofrequency (induction) and microwave heating systems to target the energy to the place it is required. We also work with non-thermal plasma processing to address the needs for more efficient and distributed processing systems.
Raman Spectroscopy for online analysis: effect of gases, solids, laser power, aquisition time, signal/noise and more….
We investigated Raman spectroscopy for online analysis by monitoring hydrogenation reactions through relative peak intensities, subsequently, determine the concentration of components.
We manufactured 10 kg catalyst using characterisation to validate the scale-up procedure from lab to manufacturing processes.
Short residence time and high temperature – an impossible combination for batch – allowed increasing specific reaction rates 8-fold in flow with the same product quality.
After 100 long-term runs and building a bespoke reactor system to manage safety risks, we developed a stable catalyst with months at least 2 month lifetime.
